Welcome to my blog! This is my way of sharing the things I enjoy most: gardening and cycling. I live in Santa Cruz, California, nestled in the northern curve of the Monterey Bay. Our Mediterranean climate makes year-round gardening a joy, and hummingbirds and butterflies are steady garden visitors in every season. The nearby Salinas Valley is known as the salad bowl of the world- no matter where you live, chances are the strawberries, artichokes, and brussels sprouts you’re eating are from right here.
Santa Cruz is a wonderful place to ride a bike, road and mountain. I ride both, but my heart is in the dirt, and the trails at Wilder Ranch State Park and Fort Ord National Monument just down the road in Monterey are where I can be found riding most days.
